Charlie Parker's solo on 'Oh, Lady Be Good!'

For this weeks #transcriptiontuesday I transcribed this awesome solo by Charlie Parker blowing over an old 1940’s recording of “Oh! Lady Be Good!” with Jay McShann. It was quite a mission to transcribe this... some of these lines do not fall where you think they will and it throws you off track. That little arpeggio shift between the G major and G diminished took a fair amount of wood shedding to get accurate too. 

Feeling grateful that lockdown has at least afforded me plenty of time to get my shit together. 

Onwards and upwards!
